Councillor Peter Murray and my Conservative colleagues on Halton Council have been showing what we mean by our pledge to “cut the cost of politics in Halton” by calling for a freeze on councillor allowances.
We pushed for rises in councillors’ allowances to be shelved for the next three years, instead of current plans to suspend rises only if the Labour-controlled council’s staff pay does not increase.
The people of Halton face a real choice on Election Day. We want to cut the cost of politics in Halton. Others clearly do not.
